Slayer Frontman Misses Headbanging

(Classic Rock) Slayer frontman Tom Araya has admitted that he misses the physical connection he had with the band's songs while he was still able to headbang during concerts.

He underwent back surgery in 2010 to address fused vertebrae, meaning that he's no longer able to perform with the dramatic motions he used to display. Araya tells Loudwire: "There's things that have gone on in my life that's made me change how I play. I had surgery - I can't headbang any more.

"That was a big part of what I enjoyed. I liked knowing I was one badass headbanger. Now I'm grooving with the music and the feel of the songs, which is cool. The physical connection was a big part for me." Read more here.
